Ever wondered what people are talking about at this conference? What exactly is D3 and why  would you want to use it? What is the difference between Ruby, Python and Javascript? And why is there a J in front of Query? Welcome to our no-judgment, starting-at-step-zero session even NICAR veterans can use. We'll review tech concepts and jargon you'll likely hear at NICAR this year and explain what they mean, why they're useful and point you to the sessions that can teach you the terms you now understand.
